Sylvia Rivera a Radio Onda Rossa (by anarcofrocio)
I wish I knew Zachi Teleshia before I heard about his passing because at such a young age, he gets it.
He understood the power of comic books to somebody like him. Zachi was a fan of comics, loved them, grew inspiration from them, and wanted to make his own. And he did. He created and wrote his own comic series, Hero Up! all before the age of 10.
Then you see what Zachi has gone through. His birth mother murdered by his birth father was one thing. In 2008, he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a cancer that affects the bones. Zachi created a character as an alter-ego for himself, Venom-Transporter, the leader who could gain strength from any toxin.
From what I read about him, he seemed like a typical kid, a happy, fun-loving individual who loved to create and help out anybody that he could.
Zachi Telesha died on April 29, 2013 at the age of 12. It’s not He may have found inspiration in comics, but as a comics fan and creator, I’m finding a lot of inspiration in him.
Rest in comfort and peace, little man.
